Soldiers of the Southern Cross: Tallapoosa County, Alabama

Via Calvin Johnson

In 1861 the quiet little hamlet of Youngsville, Alabama reverberated with the sound of fife and drum played by William Brittain and Augustus Daniel Rape. The duo were led by music teacher Albert G. Holloway. Years later Rape was still playing his drum at a Confederate Veterans Reunion in Arkansas circa 1910.
